We don’t know how much time we really have in this existence, so do regrets really have a purpose? They only serve to make us wonder about ourselves. 

We might have our plans, perfectly designed blueprint of life, but can you really control how life plays out? 

We waste our time overthinking about what could’ve or should’ve been done at that time instead of forgetting to enjoy our present.

We can never really know what went wrong, so why bother worrying about it?

Experience the ultimate freedom of life without holding back Regrets.

Since we have a chance, why not use it by living every moment and having no Regrets.

Here are the list of 7 things you won’t Regret doing:

  1. BECOMING YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND.

I realized self-love was important when I wasn’t feeling good about myself and my self-esteem was down. I listened to some music, read empowering books, and told myself as I looked in the mirror ‘You are smart, kind and enough’. 

Love yourself as you’ve never loved anyone else before and it will never be a Regret. Give love fully, receive love fully, there’s no other way to truly experience life in all its glory.

You need to focus more on your own consciousness rather than that of other people. If you continually use a disguise, you miss the moment to allow your true self to flourish and strengthen. You’re not striving for excellence but for originality.

2. GIVING PEOPLE A SECOND CHANCE.

One of the scariest parts of accepting an apology is deciding we want to give a person who did us wrong a second chance. 

Life is too short to leave things on bad terms. 

Giving a second chance does not excuse their wrongdoings, but it adds substance to their actions. Then it’s easier to at least try to be empathetic and to offer forgiveness. It offers a chance to grow and be a better person.

By denying someone a second chance, you are denying yourself the peace that comes with forgiving and moving forward. Release the burden from yourself, as it is not yours to carry.


3. LEARNING NEW THINGS.


I don’t know about you, but I’m always curious about everything, and always aware of how much I still have to learn. 

I believe learning something new gets us access to different opportunities and the chance to try something new might be the best ones you have ever tried.

When you learn how to play an instrument, you open up a new income stream. When you learn a new language, doors open for you to work in different types of companies. When you learn to program, you stand a better chance of getting a promotion. When you learn to cook, you can prepare your favorite cuisines and relish them. 


This will leave you with a sense of accomplishment and pride and, you won’t Regret doing it. 


4. GIVING PEOPLE COMPLIMENTS.

I remember I was at the supermarket one day and I insisted to my mommy that we get some Peaches because they’re good for the skin.  My mom walked away, but a lady at the counter said something about smelling fabulous and I nodded along thinking she was speaking about the peaches.  But she clarified and stated, “ No, dear, I meant you smell fabulous. It still makes my heart melt. 

That day, I realized acknowledging even the slightest thing about a person can make them happy. 

It makes a person more active and productive throughout the day and this is one thing you won’t ever Regret doing.

By complimenting them, you’re distracting yourself from all the things going wrong in your day and helping make someone else’s day a little brighter. 

5. SAVING MONEY FOR LATER 

Who hasn’t been awake at 3:00 a.m? Wondering how they were going to afford something they needed? As you gather savings, your financial worries should fall off, as long as you’re living within your means.

Saving money can help you pay for large purchases, avoid debt, reduce your financial stress, leave a financial legacy, and provide you with a greater sense of financial freedom.

You should always set a little money aside for enjoyment. And when you have savings, you can do this without any Regret.

The more money you have saved, the more you control your own destiny. You may be able to take risks or try new things. 

Pretty good reasons to save money, right?

6. LETTING GO 

We just desperately hold on to the stuff, getting more anxious thinking about it.

  • Letting go is sometimes being the bigger person and choosing to take the high road.
  • Letting go is choosing to look at any situation, time, or place and know that maybe it’s time for you to move on to better possibility. 
  • Letting go means outgrowing people and that is surely something not to be sorry about.

You are not abandoning, you are not giving up. This is one of the most important things that you won’t Regret doing. 

You are choosing to no longer live in those moments. When you choose to let go of what was, you choose to seize on to what can be. 

7. FALLING IN LOVE 

The incredible feeling of diving into heaven, the electrifying rush, and the giddiness of being attracted to someone. It makes people unreasonably happy and puts a bounce in their step beyond their usual behavior. 

Love makes you fearless, you suddenly have the courage to do things you thought were impossible for you. Your approach to life is brighter and happier.

TIP: If you feel it in your heart, tell someone you love them. Life’s too short to hide your true feelings.

When you’re in love, you’re a better version of yourself. You’re nice to everyone, and you’re eternally thankful. It makes you a better version of yourself.

Regret

This is life, it goes on!

Five years from now, it won’t really matter how your hair looked today or what brand of clothes you wore. What will matter is how you lived, how you loved, and what you learned along the way.

Don’t waste your life in Regret, make time for your loved ones, stay determined on your goals, focus on doing good deeds for people and the planet. 

Sometimes the choice will be utterly clear. But on many occasions, things will seem trickier. The path you chose may be fraught with uneasiness and anxiety. 

This is your first time as YOU, do what you love – make mistakes, learn from them, take risks but don’t Regret.
